President Trump on Thursday asked why the Senate Intelligence Committee isn’t investigating “Fake News Networks.”
“Why Isn’t the Senate Intel Committee looking into the Fake News Networks in OUR country to see why so much of our news is just made up-FAKE!” Trump said in a Tweet.

Trump’s comments come following leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee saying they are still investigating whether there was any collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 presidential race.
“The committee continues to look into all evidence to see if there was any hint of collusion,” Chairman Richard Burr, R-NC, told reporters Wednesday.
“I’m not even going to discuss initial findings because we haven’t any.”
“The issue of collusion is still open.” He added later.
Trump has continually contended that the Russia investigation is a “hoax.”
